@Raspberry_Pi meet up at @NYCResistor #AmericanPi – @adafruit @element14
Adafruit had a great time visiting with Rob Bishop from Raspberry Pi at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn. Lots of enthusiastic folks showed up and learned, shared, and made all around the Raspberry Pi single board computer. Some photos and notes below!
Becky, gone Pi crazy.
Rob sets up demo Raspberry Pi projects
Phil and Matt were hard at work on their laptops, but Limor and Becky were just in the moment. 🙂
Above Limor demonstrates the RasPi light painting project, which you can learn to build over on the Adafruit Learning site.
Special thanks to Rob Bishop (Liz and Eben)PiBow folks for a case and Newark Element 14 for some great prizes in addition to all the Adafruit gear in the page (thank you Grace C. Wilson L. Elizabeth H. Denise F. Suzanne C. Scott G. and Tom M and the team at Newark Element 14).
Matt Mets demos his and Max Henstell’s internet-controlled LED strip. They also won 3 Raspberry Pis to further their project.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
